Walk among charming works of art and brilliant white marble installations that pay respect to the most influential people and events in American history. Strung like solemn pearls around the green lawns of the National Mall, each D.C. memorial offers an important lesson and a fascinating story.

Start at the open plaza of the US Navy Memorial and listen as your informative guide tells you about the significance of each feature, like the bronze statue of the Lone Sailor that stands in memory of all naval service personnel. Visits to nearby sites including the World War II, Iwo Jima, Korean, and Vietnam Memorials give you more opportunities to recall the heavy sacrifices of brave soldiers.

Take a break—either on a boat cruise with lunch down the Potomac, or exploring the shops of the Pentagon City Mall—before arriving at tributes to incredible individuals like activist Martin Luther King and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At the Lincoln Memorial, reflect on the intricate carvings of sculpture artist Lot Flannery as you try to decipher the 16th president’s stoic gaze. Continue to the Jefferson Memorial and stroll between its dignified columns as you look across the Tidal Basin to see the Washington Monument rising up out of a field of cherry trees.

In between the reverent sites, enjoy viewing the White House and the US Capitol Building, where senators and representatives are busy maintaining the legacy of the memorials and monuments that surround them.
